    They look like decent clays (as far as I can tell from the shoddy pics). The price is right though, if you like the style. If you dont care for the faces, just keep looking. Theres lots of them floating around out there, just a matter of finding what you like. I'm curious if these are new production pipes, or some stockpile of old stock ?? Impossible to tell from pics, but if they are old pipes, the chances of them being high quality goes way up. If they're new production, its sort of a crapshoot. Could be good clay for pipes, could just be some shoddy crap they shoved into a mold and fired.

    Here are some clay pipes I have been considering.

    Is anyone familiar with these from the Penn Valley Pipes and Tobacco Co?

    hey philip ya i was lookin at em an they r prob the way to go i think. I just hate shippin fees on a low priced item. was also kinda leanin towards the clay with the vulcanite stem, little more pricey but... can git a plain but good one for $60.00

    Penn Valley's clay pipes are awesome. I still carry them around in bubble wraps and they smoke great.

    Owner of the website store was really nice too

    Are you referring to the Lepeltier Pipes?
    I have one which I like a lot. The bowl design gives a very cool smoke. I think it's worth the money, but I can't compare them to traditional clays. I just ordered some from Penn Valley.

    Mr. Snuff has a nose warmer for about $6.

    You can find clays at reenactment sites like this.

    These look good with the tip dipped in glaze. I like the cutty!
